The Gathering of The Vibes Release Initial 2012 Lineup

Gathering of the Vibes Lineup Poster It’s jam time at Gathering of the Vibes this July.

Do we ever love spring with all the stellar lineups being thrown at us every day. Today, we get the lineup for The Gathering of the Vibes, one of the largest jam fests in the Northeast and one of our picks for Best Camping Festivals of 2012. The mellow vibes takes place July 19-22, 2012, at the aptly named Seaside Park in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

The Gathering of the Vibes (GOTV) lineup has grabbed all your favorite noodlers like Yonder Mountain String Band, STS9, Dark Star Orcherstra, Zach Deputy, Ryan Montbleau Band, and Keller Williams. The headliners this year are Primus along with Phil Lesh & Friends. The travelling superband trio of Bob Weir, Bruce Hornsby, and Branford Marsalis will perform a set as well.

Late night jam sessions will feature Soulive and Lettuce, Conspirator, Gigantic Underground Conspiracy, and The Machine. And we haven’t even covered all the bands yet.

Early bird weekend passes with camping start at $185. You do need this pass if you want to attend any late night shows or even if you want to swing by a friend’s campsite for a brewski. Single day tickets are available for $65. Oh c’mon get the weekend pass already! You’re going to want it.
